Hey there! 🙂
Hope you are all doing great.
Today, I’m gonna share a few tips with you on how to take amazing pictures of wildlife.
1. Blend In.
Make an effort to blend in with the environment. It will increase the chances of you getting a more natural shot. You know. Since you are not sticking out like a sore thumb in the wilderness.
2. Angle and Lighting.
Most animals love seeking shade under trees and all. This makes it hard to take pictures of them since they may appear darker than they should. So you need to work your way around those shadows. Go to the other side of the animal maybe. Very smoothly though. Then take your shot.
3. Composition tells The Story.
Get as much of the natural habitat as the animals you are capturing into your frame. This lets viewers have an idea of what’s going on without having to say a word.
4. Steady Hands.
Wildlife can be unpredictable. One minute they’re “posing” for a shot and the next they are running away from you. As much as you would love to run after them and shoot, you’re much better off standing still and zooming in. While keeping the camera very steady so as to avoid blurry images.
5. Timing and Persistence.
Those “Magic Shots” don’t just happen. You have to be really patient. Observe the wildlife. Admire them. Enjoy the moment. Take it all in. And take a couple of pictures as you do so. Your “Magic Shot” will be in there somewhere when you finally relax and go through the photos you took.
Always be kind.
